Enlit Asia’s 2021 flagship event, the Enlit Asia Digital Festival, begins in mere hours and will be the largest power event for the ASEAN region in the last two years. In collaboration with The 76th Indonesia National Electricity Day, the Festival will be taking place over two days on 28-29 September 2021. The event will seek to digitally join businesses to energy leaders from ASEAN utilities and IPPs and provide a platform for learning and knowledge sharing.
Despite travel restrictions and that the Enlit team cannot physically be in Indonesia, the show must go on, and what a show it will be.
The Festival has a phenomenal line-up with a wide range of keynotes and discussions, which include the transformative uses of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and asset management, and separately, sustainable energy practices, exploring how to best utilise data as well as also engaging our consumers effectively to name a few. Digitalisation and the global energy transition are key themes on which the Festival centres. Besides these themes, the event will explore what the future looks like for indigenous ASEAN resources such as natural gas and coal.
Practically, we also will collectively discuss how to keep the lights on with respect to the ongoing COVID-19 endemic. Has the pandemic affected the energy sector? Yes, but in ways you may or may not expect, which will be echoed by experts from the region on best practices you can take away with you.
This year, we also highlight the Indonesian energy start-up scene with the Winners and Judges from the Indonesian Energy Innovation Challenge. They come together to discuss how the future generation of the Indonesian energy sector will play a part in making the energy transition thrive in Southeast Asia. They will each share their perspective on the future energy sector and what new technologies and capabilities could transform the energy sector.
For this event, we have been honoured to work with the Electrical Power Society of Indonesia, MKI. We are proud to be supported by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources as well as PT PLN (Persero).
“The team and I are so pleased to host the very first Enlit Asia Digital Festival, and I cannot wait to welcome our community to the event starting tomorrow. As you know, we are living during one of the most interesting and transformative times ever in the energy, and the Festival will touch upon a kaleidoscope of pressing topics, trends, and innovations in the ASEAN energy sector. At this uncertain time, Enlit Asia remains a steady support to our network in the ASEAN energy community. We are grateful for the opportunity to connect with our community, some who have been a part of PowerGen, or Asian Utility Week as we were previously, and also new additions who have only just joined the community. We are also very honoured to take part in the 76th Indonesian National Electric Day and are very pleased we partnered with MKI for this exciting event. Enjoy what’s ahead, everyone! It’s going to be a great couple of days,” said Richard Ireland, Managing Director, Clarion Events Asia.
